Bookmap Order Flow
- Raise Your Edge
It doesn’t matter if you’re a scalper, swing trader, or another type of day trader. As traders, we all have one thing in common - to find an edge in the market. Our pioneering order flow trading software has been designed to give you just that.
- Gain real-time order flow insight using the fully configurable limit order book (COB) and depth of market (DOM).
- Watch how the market evolves and reacts over time. “Tell the story” of recent price action with historic liquidity data.
- Identify incoming market volume, and watch absorption and exhaustion unfold to spot reversals before they happen.
- Learn a Real Depth of the Market
Despite being the most common chart type used among retail traders, a candlestick chart is also one of the most limited and restricted ways to represent market data. If you’re only using basic candlesticks in your day trading platform, you could be missing out on a staggering 90% of market data.
Candlestick Charts vs Heatmap
While a candlestick chart is great for organizing price action into specific time frames, it shows no information on the current spread (best bid and offer) or market liquidity (limit order book).
A heatmap on the other hand gives you all the insight of a footprint chart, volume profile, and DOM put together. Plus, it makes the information easy to digest and understand at a glance.
Visualization of the Historical Liquidity
By continually taking snapshots of the COB, our cutting-edge desktop trading software collects, stores, and plots historical order book data.
Adding a time dimension to the order book is extremely powerful and lets you visualize how incoming market orders react to established areas of intent.

Essential Bookmap Features
Based on our expertise in HFT trading, Bookmap comes pre-packed with an extensive selection of day trading and scalping indicators that set it apart from other order flow trading platforms.
The order book imbalance indicator provides a snapshot of the current market sentiment. It allows you to quickly assess when trading activity is weighted in one direction to identify momentum or exhaustion points.
Strength Level Indicator
By comparing the available liquidity at a certain price with the actual number of orders that transacted at that price, the strength level indicator shows areas of hidden liquidity.
Iceberg Order Detection
Our cutting-edge add-on that is sold via the Bookmap marketplace detects stops and iceberg orders within the order book.
Large Lot Tracker
By seeing what percentage of the total liquidity is contained within a single large order, you can follow the behavior of dominant market participants.
Our fully configurable volume dots allow you to see the total volume traded or the volume delta (the buy aggressors minus the sell aggressors). You can even change the clustering mode and watch volume updates every nanosecond.
Bookmap is packed with many more advanced indicators and unique tools to help you find your edge in the market and trade with confidence.
You can even build your own customized indicators or browse 3rd-party add-ons available from our marketplace.
